Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has copped the full brunt of an elderly Central Coast commuter’s fury over train timetable changes.
The Prime Minister had travelled to Gosford by train this morning for a tour of several local facilities and had stopped briefly at the ticket barriers to chat with station staff.

“If you want to know, it’s plain shit,” the commuter said as she came up to the group.
The surprised PM thought he had misheard and asked “what’s that?”.
